Big Fat Lingcod caught up in Elfin Cove AK

Fishing All Along the pacific coast is heating up for big lingcod and Halibut! One of the most productive ways to catch these fish is by jigging. Lingcod jigs are good for all species of fish because we design our jigs to imitate the food in which these fish eat. our 4,8,12,16oz squid jigs are designed to mimmick a live squid, and what fish doesnt eat live squid. Lingcod jigs are also more exciting to fish with than just using bait as you feel the vicious attack of the fish eating the prey. We recommend fishing jigs with braided line and a small leader of flourocarbon line. The no stretch of the braided helps you feel what your jig is doing even at depths of 300′ and the flouro helps with visibilty to keep your lure stealth! Pair this with a heavy graphite rod (we are designing one now specific for Ling cod jigging contact us to be put on the list) and you will be catching fish in no time.

Lingcod fishing has been hot in most areas this year, now its SE Alaskas turn with their opener set to start on May 15th. I just got a review of our jigs from a customer in this area. Here’s what he had to say

“Fyi, Ling season opens here in SE Alaska on May 15th. Have been out twice and out fished other jigs 5 to 1. No exaggeration! My brother was using a lead head with glow twin twister tail, his favorite and go to jig. He also used a black Kodiak Kustom with blue/glow skirt. That jig is my go to jig.. I literally caught 5 fish to every one he caught. Because of the time of year only one halibut, but on rock cod it was killer. Yellow Eye, Quill back, China, Tiger, and countless Lords and Irish Lords. . Your jig appears to be holding up well with just some of the paint chipped off which is expected if you fish it properly bouncing the bottom. I have caught all of the above and the skirting is intact and still attractive.”

So far the reviews for all of our jigs have recieved rave reviews so we are sure that the new 8 and 12 oz Realistic Squids will also be a big hit! Get yours now and view all of our Ling cod Jigs on our Shop Lures Page

While many landings offer live bait on these ling cod fishing trips, heavy lingcod jigs seem to always produce that jackpot fish. Fishing with jigs takes a little more patience as you may not be catching the smaller rockfish everyone else is on the bait. But if you can resist the urge to switch to anchovies or cut squid, chances are if there is a big lingcod in the area it will hit that larger jig that your fishing! So dont give up, keep on jigging!!!!

New Rattling Lures Drive Lingcod Crazy!!

New Copper color LINGCOD JIGS made with internal rattle Drives the Lingcod wild! New Copper color LINGCOD JIGS made with internal rattle Drives the Lingcod wild!

These new ling cod jigs have incorporated an internal rattle into the heavy 8oz head which in results so far have outperformed other jigs 4 to 1 in fishing trials! Lingcod are very aggressive territorial fish and when these jigs come along they really seem to piss off the Lingcod! Ling cod strikes are very ferrocious but when they hit these jigs it seems even Harder! When fishing for lingcod with these jigs we suggest fishing them them right on the bottom, jig them up and down banging them off the rocks to cause more noise and vibration. Make sure to hold on tight as that strike can surprise you! Tight Lines and Bent Rods!!

Lingcod rigs can be a very effective way to catch more fish. The rigs generally have 2 hooks with a rubber squid on each.  You can add some cut or live bait to sweeten up your lingcod rig. These are generally easier to fish than a jig and will also produce some larger rockfish as well as some nice lingcod! You can purchase some here on our shop lures page

Ling cod jigs, are they better than bait?

Some people swear by the jig and fish nothing but the jig! If bait is readily available ling cod will devour the right bait. I like to use big greenback mackeral, sand dabs, sardines, and live squid when available. It’s great if you have live bait available but in the winter months when lingcod fishing is best a lot of bait barges are closed and making your own bait can take a lot of time. This is when you break out your best ling  cod jigs and ling cod lures. There are many types of jigs out there that have worked for decades like diamond jigs but ling cod lures have come along way in recent years with really life like lures and jigs that will draw a strike from even the shyest lingcod. Check out some off the newer style octopus jigs in our shop lures page.image
